HI everyone, I do apologize in advance if this topic has come up before. I am new to SDN and I have learned alot from the posts that I have read. So I am posing a very important question to you all and very much interested to know your thoughts: When it comes to choosing your program/ROL, alot of people have said that they should devise their ROL based on what programs would be the 'best fit' for them. What does this really mean? I am finding that in my conversations with my fellow classmates (MSIVs) that prestige is the predominant factor in their ROL. HOwever in my situation, as much as I want a prestigous program for obvious reasons, happiness is extremely important to me. In many posts, people have mentioned that the 'top' programs have miserable residents. Is this across the board? Is this to be expected? I mean really...if its a top program are you expected to work your @$$ off and be happy. Whereas in the not-so-top programs tend to have happy residents. Its also interesting to see that alot of interns I know talk about happiness as THE MOST important factor and yet they simply cant deny the fact that going to a prestigous programs can put your foot in door for so many great opportunities. For me, ideally, I would like both. So truthfully...what is it for you... happiness or prestige?
